After five years on and off the market, the iconic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off house, a sleek midcentury-modern architectural treasure and the home of uptight character Cameron Frye, through which a vintage Ferrari famously plunged into the ravine below, has sold for $1.06 million. Located in Highland Park, Chicago, the property was originally listed for $2.35 million.
Designed by celebrated architects James Speyer, a protoge of Mies van der Rohe and David Haid, the 5,300-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home belonged to successful textile designer Ben Rose. Cantilevered over ravines, it features two steel and glass buildings (a main house and a guest house) with incredible views of surrounding woods — and not much privacy. There’s also plenty of room for that famous Ferrari: it boasts four-car interior parking. Click through the slideshow above for the full tour.
Best of luck to the new owners. Remember to use your parking break.
